Consejos De Farez is a collaboration between Mark Mailler (Media Artist) and Ivey Wawn (dancer/choreographer) who are cousins.
Through the excavation of our family story we seek to develop an understanding of identity construction that is intertwined with themes of migration, intergenerational repetition and wilful forgetting. Embracing fact and fiction as materials, we produce mythical actions, visitations, and stories to fill up the black holes in our family history, as a project that works not only to fictionalise our present condition, but also gives room for us to build a collaborative practice.
